Book description

Enough: A story about community

Nearly enough,
sort of enough,
almost enough ...

In Hana's street there is not enough. Until Hana decides to do something about it.

While Hana's attempts to help are in the beginning successful, when winter comes, then hardship she is unable to meet everyone's needs. At the point where she despairs, her family and the neighbours she has helped step in and offer to give her a hand. By pulling together they build a resilient community in which everyone has enough.


Enough is  a story about community, kindness and the power of helping hands.
This book is also a way for younger children to reflect on and make sense of what has happened in the current pandemic through story.

Enough is a resource that explores whānau and teachers can use to discuss and explore what it means to be a community, and ways to respond and look after each other in times of need.

Enough is a story Sarah Johnson had been wanting to write for many years.

The event of Covid-19, along with a successful application for a grant through Copyright Licensing New Zealand's Special Round of Contestable Funds, meant the story could finally happen and would be relevant in todays society.
